    Empire!!! Yes! Such a great show! I was not sure what to expect but with Terrence and Taraji in the lead roles, I knew it would be worth watching.

      LOL. I am excited too, but who knows what will become of “Lucious”. Did you read his Rolling Stone interview? He is teetering on the edge….

    Good move, Fox! Great news! Congratulations to all the fans. Waiting for season 2 in 2016!

  3. Belinda Rowe

    Absolutely love this show! The best nighttime soap since Dallas!

  4. Fannie

    Glad for Gotham! Love it, but midseason again????

  5. Max Lambert ^-^

    I’m surprised! Empire is the fastest broadcast renewal in a few years! The only way to beat this record is by renewing the show after the pilot )

    Empire is great and has such potential. Renewal is a must. Lucius has to recover and he& Cookie need to get back together. The drama between them & the chemistry will never get old. They have 2 very strong personalities and lots of trials and tribulations they could face — agree, disagree or not. BTW, I am strictly a country music & older hard rock fan, so I was skeptical about whether or not I could watch this but I love the show! Keep it going… I can deal with the music. It doesn’t bother me. Just don’t kill Lucius!

    Empire is great in all, I love it a lot, but why do we have to wait sooooo long for season 2.
    Why can’t we see it, at least, 4months later.

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE me some Empire, Terrence Howar and Taraji!!!! I hate when the show ends after the hour. I want to be on this show sooooo bad. Itis better than Dynastry, Dallas and Knots Landing!!

    The show was explosive and unrelenting with many different plot lines .
    I am hearing multiple celebs want to get on the show if they let Bieber and Kardashian on there they will lose a huge audience of followers. Hope they do not go in that direction .

    Fox and Daniels you have a GREAT SHOW don’t ruin it !

  12. Tony

    Waiting til 2016 for a new season is stupid…I may just forget about it by then. They should go for a September release!!!

  16. Freda

    I don’t understand why we have to wait until 2016 for the 18 episodes of season 2, I turned on my tv on October 28, 2015 to see that there wasn’t any showings of Empire, so disappointing and I didn’t get an announcement that the season 2 would be broken up in two parts. As a fan of this show I wasn’t happy. What’s going on Fox Tv? Why tease the fans with just the 3 to 4 episodes then say now you have to wait for the other until 2016 for the rest of the 18 episodes.
